Derry Sinn Féin to launch election campaign

Derry Sinn Féin will officially launch its Local Government election campaign at an event in the Guildhall on Tuesday, the party’s group leader on Derry City and Strabane District Council Sandra Duffy has confirmed.

Councillor Duffy said “We will be fielding 22 candidates across the constituency, almost half of whom are women and all of whom bring a strong mix of youth, experience energy and commitment to the role.

“Sinn Féin in Derry, just like across the whole island, is in the strongest position it has ever been and we hope to build on that in the local government elections on May 2nd.

“A strong Sinn Féin vote is vital in this election because we are in a crucial political period where the future relationships on and between these islands are being shaped.

“We have shown that we are the party that will defend your best interests against a reckless Brexit agenda and stand up for the rights and equality of all citizens in the face of ongoing discrimination by the DUP.

“Help us continue to do that by coming out on May 2nd and voting for Rights, Equality and Irish Unity.”
